cc Thc winter is over and gone at last, 

The days of snow and cold are past, 
Over the fields the flowers appear, 
It is the Spirits' voice we hear. 
The singing of birds, 
A warbling band, 
The voice of truth is heard in our land." 

— Bishop Coxe. 

"The sun is bright — the air is clear, 
The darting swallows soar and sing, 

And from the stately elms I hear, 
The blue bird prophesying Spring" 

— Longfellow.

How many agree with me that complaining has be-. 
come a chronic disease among the students? Construc- 
tive criticism is a good thing, but where we are always 
finding fault with every situation and fail to take account 
of the good, is it not time a check came? If we would 
stop talking about what is the trouble and actually do 
something, going about our daily life with vim, vigor, and 
cheerfulness, troubles would vanish like lightning. Let 
us apply the cure of cheerful thoughts! 

There's always an element of uncertainty in any new 
undertaking. When the staff decided to open a short 
story contest the results could not be seen. We had hoped 
to be showered with good short stories, as we felt confi- 
dent that the material lay dormant among the girls. We 
still feel confident that the ability is there as the five 
stories which were handed in indicate. However, we were 
disappointed in the slight response. We know that many 
others considered writing, but evidently did not carry out 
their good intentions before the settled date. (There is 
material enough in that thought for a lengthy editorial. 
How soon one acquires the habit!) We are also disap-

pointed in the decision which had to be made. The judges, 
a faculty committee of three heads of departments, gave 
the returns that the stories did not come up to a high 
enough standard to merit the prizes. We hope that this 
decision will not discourage the writing of many stories 
another year, but will mean the setting of a standard which 
will be an honor well worth striving for. 

We are sorry that so many mistakes were made in the 
printing of our first German story last month. They were 
due to the printer's ignorance of German and to a failure 
to re-read the proof. We feel confident that our readers 
were able to see beyond the errors the true charm of the 


During the last month we were glad to receive an ar- 
ticle from Letta Irwin of class 1914, who is now teaching 
English at Hume, 111. She has realized how important it 
is for an underclassman to plan early in her college life a 
well correlated course which will enable her to teach most 
efficiently her chosen subject after graduation. Miss Irwin 
speaks of the subjects necessary for an English course, es- 
pecially. She enumerates a number of English courses 
which she considers as necessary and advises one to have 
a good foundation in at least one foreign language and to 
take as much Bible as possible. Such correlation of sub- 
jects toward a definite end is something which many of us 
need, not in English alone but in any line. Interest shown 
by the alumnae is most encouraging and we solicit ma- 
terial from them at all times. We regret that at present, 
because of lack of space, we are unable to print Miss Ir- 
win's article. 


As an organ of the college and student body, the 
f jreetings wants to step into line with the Students' Boost- 
er Club for 1 00 Freshmen next year. Our paper now goes 
into at least two dozen High Schools and through its col- 
umns many High School girls can be reached. If you feel

that the paper in your High School would be effective drop 
the address in the Greetings box. During the next few 
months the heartiest co-operation of all students can make 
our paper a live wire which will draw attention to the 
school. Don't allow any brilliant thought to go to waste. 
If you feel that you cannot write well enough, pass your 
suggestion along, so that someone else can make use of 
it. From now on space will be left open for student edi- 
torials. They need not all be of the same tenor; there are 
many sides to the question. If you've been waiting to 
show your "pep," now you have your chance. 


A hundred Freshmen for September, nineteen hundred 
fifteen, is our watch word for the coming months. But 
these hundred Freshmen will not come without some in- 
formation of the value of our college. How are we to aid 
in giving one hundred girls this information ? Do we real- 
ize that we should be and are responsible for many of 
these new students? Do we fully comprehend what in- 
fluence our interest and help will have upon a girl decid- 
ing those most important questions, "Where shall the next 
four years of my life be spent? What characteristics do 
I wish strengthened and which subdued during the next 
four years; and in what place can I find that help? " 

Are we loyal daughters of I. W. C, expressing our 
loyalty to our college by showing to her those better char- 
acteristics that she is seeking? Do we ever lose an oppor- 
tunity to express by our actions and ideals the best for 
which our college stands, or the opportunity to speak out 
energetically, loyally, lovingly, for her? 

If we ask ourselves these questions we find that we 
are missing many opportunities of advertising our college. 
Dr. Harker has often remarked that the only difference 
between himself and a travelling man is that the travelling 
man carries his goods with him and he can not. But Dr. 
Harker's samples are spread far and wide. Are we the 
kind of samples that draw trade? Are we strong student 
magnets? Before we can impress any one else with the

value of our college, and of the love we have for her, we 
must first of all be ourselves intensely loyal. Loyal not 
in singing her songs the loudest, nor in making the most 
touching speeches in mass meetings, but in our every day 
life, seeing the best in I. W. C. and loving her for what 
she does for us. We must be loyal to her as an institution. 
We must love her when all the present girls and faculty 
are gone, and only the dear old walls of the Woman's 
College remain the same. Without this true loyalty we 
are useless as student magnets. 

Let us as a student body become magnetized to draw 
to the Illinois Woman's College next year one hundred 
Freshmen girls! — A Freshman. 


Many years ago, indeed centuries ago, when only fair- 
ies and elves wandered thru the worlds, everything was 
real and only Joy and Happiness found a welcoming heart. 

Near the Sea in a rocky cavern, a beautiful nymph 
lived, loved by all the other fairies and nymphs. The 
flowers loved her, also, and lifted their lovely faces from 
her barren threshold and bloomed their prettiest for her. 
Every morning when she awoke, she gathered fruit from 
the trees and seeds from the meadows to feed the Golden 
Fishes which lived in the sandy pools by the shore. All 
through the day she cared for them, so that they grew to 
love her, too, better than all others except, of course, the 
Golden Sunfather who had put them there. 

The South Wind was her dearest friend, breathing her 
soft, warm breath about the little nymph, making her 
warm and happy, and together they frolicked with the 
flowers thru the day. The East and West Wind loved the 
maiden, too, and told her wonderful stories of their jour- 
neys far and wide. Sometimes the strong East Wind car- 
ried her far over the land to the Land of Dawn where the 
Sun father, Moon mother and their Star children dwelt. 

1 he North Wind was very different, however. He 

Page Six 

Wit College (greeting* 

was jealous of the friendship of his brother and sister winds 
and sought every chance to bring unhappiness to the little 
Fairy. He would send his icy winds upon her and breathe 
his angry tempests about her. All the Fairies feared him; 
the flowers drooped their heads and crouched low against 
the good Earth when he came near. 

The little Nymph maiden, however, did not mind him, 
for the kind Sea was very good to her and soothed her 
fears with tender caresses. At evening he would sing low, 
sweet songs to her, and when Night came, he would creep 
softly up to her cavern door to guard her slumbers. 

The North Wind knew that the Sea loved the maiden, 
and he grew to hate him, too. Many times he blew fierce- 
ly upon the Sea and lashed him with his storms of temper. 
Finally the anger grew so severe that for many days the 
maiden must stay within the cavern. The North Wind 
froze the pools of the Golden Fishes, with his icy breath, 
to anger the Nymph. He could not conquer the Sea, no 
matter how cold his winds and this was a great humiliation. 
The Nymph only loved the Sea more for his tender care 
and patience, and waited for Night to come when he would 
creep nearer. 

The Sea was very sad for he knew that the Nymph 
must always stay on the land and that he could never 
take her in his arms and tell her his love. Sometimes 
when the sadness grew unbearable and his heart was an- 
gry, he tossed his huge body about and flung his brave 
arms above him. The North Wind delighted in these 
outbursts and would rush out over the Sea with his wildest 
roar. Then the Sea would in shame become calm and 
would hide his feelings. 

The Sun father each day watched the contest of the 
rivals, and at night the Moon mother and Star children 
watched, too. Then, because the Sun father was kind 
and loved the Sea, he decided to help him. So, when the 
Nymph was one day feeding the Golden Fishes and the 
North Wind sent his piercing breath about her, the Sun 
father sent his warmest rays upon her and the North Wind 

Page Seven 


®fje College Greeting* 

withdrew in shame. The Nymph, in her gratitude, turned 
to thank the Sun father. Then he saw how very beau- 
tiful she was. 

"You are far too beautiful to be a nymph of the mead- 
ows and forest," he said. "You should be Queen of the 

So it happened that the Sun father told the Moon 
mother all about it, and that night when she and her Star 
children guarded the Earth, she called the nymph maiden 
from her cave home to the moon-lighted shore. Then, 
while the South Wind sang a tender little love song, the 
Moon mother stooped and kissed the beautiful maiden. 
Immediately she became a Sea Maiden. The Star children 
fastened glistening pearls in her hair as their gift, and 
clothed her in a gown of soft, green mist. 

The good Sea smiled in his happiness, and reaching 
upward drew his bride upon his breast. The Moon mother 
blessed them with her golden light, the Stars twinkled, 
and everybody was filled with wonderful happiness. 

The North Wind can not forget his anger, and when 
he sees the Sea and his Queen so happy, he again rushes 
out over the water with his chilling blasts. And Mortals 
call them Storms, for they know naught of the true story. 
Still the Sea, when the Moon mother smiles down upon 
the Earth, creeps close to the deserted cave home, lest 
some harm come to it. For it is here, when the warm 
days come again, and the North Wind retreats to his home, 
that the Sea Queen welcomes the South Wind and all her 
old friends. But we, who can not tell the real from the 
unreal, call it the Tide, the warm days, Summer, and the 
days when the North Wind spends his wrath, Winter, for 
we are only Mortals. — Feme Parrott, '18. 


The Woman's College and Jacksonville is to have 
an unusual privilege from March 25th to April 10th, when 
there will be on exhibition in the Society Halls, over forty 

Page Eight 

®be College Greeting* 

pictures by modern American painters. This exhibition 
comes as a number on the Artists' Course, and is assem- 
bled by the American Federation of Arts, Washington, 
D. C. 

A majority of the pictures were shown at the winter 
exhibition of the National Academy of Design, New York, 
and others were specially invited from the artists to com- 
plete and round out the collection. The exhibition prom- 
ises to be a distinguished showing, and is varied and inter- 
esting in its selection, and the list of painters holds some 
names most distinguished in the story of present day Amer- 
ican painting. 

There will be several pictures from painters of the old- 
er school, representing the period standing between the 
"Hudson River School" of painters and the modern school 
of landscape painters. Of this older school, F. S. Church 
and Geo. H. Smillie will show pictures. 

Edward Redfield sends his picture, "The Red-Barn," 
which is a delightful plein air picture of much charm and 
atmosphere. He is one of that school of realists who has 
profited by the experiments of the impressionists or lumin- 
arists, but has not used their methods. Of this same school 
are Gardner Symons and William Wendt, who paints 
such wonderful pictures full of imaginative quality of Cal- 
ifornia landscape. 

E. Irving Couse will show one of his incomparable 
Indian pictures, filled with the very atmosphere and soul 
of the red-men he paints. 

Edward Potthast will have a picture of bathers on the 
beach, sparkling with sunlight and color, a work similar 
in spirit to the Spanish painter Sorolla. 

Leonard Ochtman, a painter of winter landscapes, be- 
longing to the school of plein air painters, will show a pic- 
ture of subtle intimate charm called "Winter." 

Rishard Miller, who has made such a distinguished 
record of recent years, both abroad and at home, will have 
a picture, and Rrederick Frieseke will show a fine example 
of his work called "In the Garden." Frieseke has a style 

Page Nine

of sparkling radiance of color and light that strongly re- 
flects French influence of today. 

Others represented are Robert Spencer, who, though 
a young and almost unknown painter, has had the honor 
of a recent purchase of one of his works for the Metropol- 
itan Museum of Art; Jonas Lie, who made that wonderful 
showing of Panama Canal pictures in Chicago last sum- 
mer; Hobart Nichols, John Johanson, Charles Curran, 
Jane Peterson, and Charles Warren Eaton will have pic- 
tures; Mrs. Kenyon Cox, a portrait of Mrs. Homer St. 
Gaudens and son; Paul Cornoyer, who interprets the as- 
pect and life of our great modern cities, revealing their 
inherent beauty and charm, will have his delightful pic- 
ture, "Morning, Washington Square," and there will be 
some twenty or thirty other painters represented, in all a 
showing of over forty pictures. 

The exhibition promises much of real pleasure and 
delight and has in store an enrichment for every one, in a 
bigger meaning of the beauty of life and out-of-doors, and 
its expression through the medium of paint.

Easter falls this year on April 4, which is about mid- 
way between the earliest and the latest possible dates. 
The earliest possible date is March 22, and the latest pos- 
sible date is April 25. The rule for Easter is that it is al- 
ways the first Sunday after the full moon, which happens 
on or after the 21st of March. Consulting a table which 
gives the date of Easter from the year 1786 to the year 
20 1 3, a period of 227 years, we find that in all that time 
Easter occurs on March 22 only once, which was in the 
year 1818. 

In 1916 Easter comes very late, not until April 23. 
This late date occurs in the 22 7 years only four times. In 
l 84 8 Easter was on April 23 ; in 1905, in 1916, and again 
in the year 2000. It occurs as late as April 24 three times 

Page Ten 

®be College Greeting* 

in this period — in 1791, 1859, and again in 2011. It 
occurs on April 25, the latest date possible, only twice — 
in 1886 and again in 1943. 



President Harker has been making some interesting 
studies on the extent of territory from which colleges draw 
their students. He has the figures for 26 of the represen- 
tative colleges from all parts of the country. It is sur- 
prising how large a percentage of the students come from 
within 50 or 100 miles of the college. For instance: 

Harvard University secures 61 % of its regular college 
students from a radius of 100 miles. Marietta College, 
Ohio, 88%, only one-eighth of its students coming from 
outside this area. Beloit College, Wisconsin, 73% within 
100 miles; Grinnell College, Iowa, 65% ; Baker College, 
Baldwin, Kansas, 72% ; Colorado College, 62% ; Pomona 
College, Claremont, California, 86%; Swarthmore Col- 
lege, Penn., 79% ; and the University of Rochester, New 
York, 93%. 

A few colleges only cover a much wider area. Am- 
herst College, Mass., secures only 42% from within 100 
miles, nearly two-thirds of its students coming from the 
wider area. Williams College seems to hold the record 
in this respect, only 23% coming from within 100 miles 
and more than three-fourths of the students from the out- 
side. In Yale University the figures are nearly even, 47% 
coming from the 100-mile area. 

The Woman's Colleges cover a larger area. Smith 
College, Northampton, Mass., shows only 35% within 100 
miles. Vassar College, 42 % . The Illinois Woman's Col- 
lege ranks with Vassar in this respect, 42% of its 145 
students in the four regular college classes coming from 
within 100 miles, and 58%, or nearly three-fifths, com- 
ing from the wider area. This wider area includes nearly 
all the states west of Illinois, and from Texas to Wyoming. 
The College draws largely from eastern and northern Ill-

inois and from Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, and Minnesota. 
In addition to a number of local students now enrolling 
for the second semester, there are new students from four 

TO 89. 

Our feeling toward you can't be printed, 89; 

You're worse than none! 
You're on the heels of pride, unstinted — 

That shining A we haven't won! 

Come, make our record look much better; 

Change your standing — bad with us; 
Can't you have a special letter? 

Don't hide behind a vague B-plus!

One of the most enjoyable events of the year was the 
Washington Birthday Party. At five-thirty, the gay party 
of George's and Martha's assembled in the front hall and 
marched to the dining room. In the front hall, George 
Washington, cleverly represented by George Metcalf, was 
in the act of chopping clown the cherry tree. 

The dining room was prettily decorated by red candles 
and lights which made the costumes more attractive. Be-

fore dinner was served one verse of America was sung. 
After dinner everyone joined in the national, song, then 
marched upstairs where a grand march took place in the 
front corridors. 

The entertainment" for the evening was a presentation 
of 'The First Lady of the Land" by the Dramatic Club. 
The play could not have been more suitable or enjoyable. 


The Dramatic Club was temporarily organized on 
February 3, with about thirty-five members. Miss Audrey 
Berryman was elected chairman pro tern, and Miss Helen 
McGhee, secretary pro tern, until a constitution can be 
framed and the club formally organized. A committee is 
now working on the constitution. The girls in the club 
are very enthusiastic over the possibilities of what we may 
do. Various plans for the work of the club for the re- 
mainder of the year were discussed. The club accepted 
an invitation from the faculty to make the club's formal 
appearance on February 22nd, and presented Charles 
Nerdlinger's 'The First Lady of the Land." The college 
guild and other friends were special guests of the faculty. 


The dramatic Club launched forth on its career in a 
blaze of glory and covered itself with honors at its initial 
appearance before a large and enthusiastic audience when 
it presented, on the evening of February 22nd, Nirdlinger's 
four-act play, 'The First Lady of the Land." 

The cast was as follows: 

Sir Anthony Merry, British Minister Mary Harrison 

Jennings, a servant . Helen McGhee 

Rohlan Pinkney, President's Secretary .... Wilma Miller 
Sally McKean, afterwards Marchionees D'Yrugo. . . .

Vrow VanBerkle Phyllis Wilkinson 

Minister from Turkey Vivian Newman 

Minister from Russia Mary Louise Powell 

The Cook Marie Towle 

The action takes place during the administration of 
Jefferson and centers about the character of Aaron Burr. 
Feril Hess gave a subtle interpretation of this part and by 
her most unusual representation of the finished, brilliant, 
cynical Burr, created an atmosphere that compelled the 
unflagging interest of her audience. Corinne Hughes, 
truly the demure and winsome Quakeress, read her lines 
with a delicate charm and was captivating with her dainty 
coquetry. Bertha Weber as James Madison, carried most 
successfully a long and difficult part in a manner that was 
remarkable for an amateur. The parts of the British 
Minister and his domineering wife were played with a great 
deal of force by Mary Harrison and Alma Harmel. Helen 
McGhee and Katherine Long deserve special mention for 
making very attractive two relatively unimportant parts. 
The vivid and variegated costumes of the large assembly 
of ambassadors in the third act made this scene especially 
spectacular, and there were displayed here some clever 

ol acting on the part of the minor characters.

Miss Gleckler is to be congratulated for her success in 
staging this difficult play and for bringing out of the mem- 
bers of the club such an admirable expression of their his- 
trionic ability. 


We were fortunate in having Dr. Baker, pastor at 
Trinity M. E. church at Urbana, deliver the sermon on the 
Day of Prayer, and especially fortunate in having him 
with us for the three days preceding. In this way the girls 
had the opportunity to meet and know him personally. 
On these days Dr. Baker talked at both morning and eve- 
ning chapel, speaking in a most interesting and helpful 
way of the fundamentals of christian living. 

In connection with the work of the week there were 
several meetings conducted by the students. Every eve- 
ning the girls met for corridor prayer meetings. 

The annual services for the Day of Prayer for colleges 
were held in the college chapel, Thursday, February 4, at 
10:30. After a solo by Miss Miller, prayer was offered 
by Dr. Ruile of Minnesota. Dr. Harker chose as a scrip- 
ture reading Exodus 3, from which Dr. Baker chose his 
text. He spoke of the time when the angel of the Lord 
appeared in the burning bush, and Jehovah became to 
Moses a living personality. So with us, if our lives are to 
mean what they should to us, there comes a time when 
God becomes OUR God. When Moses felt the reality of 
God, he also felt the call to service. Today the call to 
help right the social order is heard. Dr. Baker spoke of 
men who had answered this call — as Livingston and Jacob 
Riis. He also emphasized the fact that the great things 
about these fighters for righteousness is their note of op- 
timism. His last thought was that through service God 
becomes to us a living bright reality. 

The different classes held prayer meetings and in the 
afternoon a general meeting of the girls with Dr. Harker 
was held, an informal meeting of great help and inspira- 
tion to all.

On the night of February 18th, the I. W. C. dining 
room presented a gala appearance. Class banners on the 
walls, gay class colors flying from chandeliers, and tables 
lighted with candles and decorated with flowers, informed 
the uninitiated that ''something was in the air." When the 
last dinner bell rang, classes came in together, taking their 
places at the assigned tables. Last of all came the Fresh- 
men marching lockstep (or rather, trying to), led by Miss 
Hull, their class officer. With green colors flying from 
canes raised aloft, the long line of Freshmen made an ef- 
fective entrance. Soon after all were seated the Sopho- 
more song was started, and the Sophomores, rising, sang 
with their usual "pep" and vivacity. There shortly came 
the dear old college song — and, of course, the whole 
school rose for that. At intervals the various classes show- 
ed their class spirit by favoring us with their songs, and a 
few yells enlivened the atmosphere, too. The "First Year 
Preps" were about as enthusiastic a bunch as any in the 
room, and more so than some, considering difference in 
numbers. Loyal lllinoisans started the state song. This 
was an inspiration to the Indianians, although only a few 
ventured to join in on the chorus of "Back, Back, Back 
to Indiana." Wylma Cox showed her loyalty to Iowa by 
favoring us with the Iowa song. 

After dinner all adjourned to the college halls where 
a general college "sing" was enjoyed. 

All this was merely a preparation for the gala time 
around the big bonfire built in front of the power house. 
A fire alarm was rung at 10:1 5 and though no precise fire 
drill rules were followed as to the course of exit, the build- 
ing was emptied in a very few minutes. Indian war dances 
around the fire, yells, and much singing followed. 

Did you ask why all of this? It was the first anniver- 
sary of the beginning of Student Government.

The Classical Club of Jacksonville is arranging for the 
production of its second annual Greek play. The play

Y. W. C. A. NOTES. 

The past month has been one of great interest and 
progress in Y. W. C. A. work. The series of services con- 
ducted by our faculty is splendid. Miss Hull opened our 
eyes to the broader understanding and outlook which 
science has given to christian thought. Miss Cowgill show- 
ed us how people, from the most primitive races up to our 
civilized peoples, have through the arts, and especially 
literature, given expression to their aspiration to know 
more of God. The eternal question in man's mind is, 
"What is God?" Tennyson has expressed this thought 
in his beautiful words: 

"Flower, in the crannied wall, 
I pluck you out of the crannies; 
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand. 
Little flower, but if I could understand 
What you are, root and all, and all in all, 
I should know what God and man is." 
On another Sunday, Miss Jennie Anderson talked to 
us about history and the development of the church in a 
most interesting manner. 

A new plan has been adopted by the National Board 
by which the students of different colleges may come into 
closer contact with one another and the National Board. 
The colleges have been formed into groups, according to 
geographical location. From such a group one member, 
known as the annual member, is sent to the conferences, 
the first this year to be the Geneva conference. It is her 
duty to represent the group of colleges, all of which share 
in her expenses. If carried out carefully, this plan will

surely make our student movement more democratic and 
more effective. 

Miss Mabel Hess, from Illinois College, has been chos- 
en to represent the folliwing colleges this year: Millikin, 
Knox, Illinois, and Illinois Woman's College. 


Several of our former members have written that they 
are coming back for the annual Theta Sigma banquet, 
which will be given Saturday, February twenty-seventh. 

Theta Sigma is very proud to claim as new members: 
Ila Allen, Ruth Pinkston, Ruth Mendenhall, Hazel Ingram, 
Zella Osburn, May Clarke, Zella Rishel, Ethel Clarke, Lu- 
cille Rexroat, Margaret Frye, Edith Sawyer and Winifred 

Saturday evening, February 13, the Theta Sigma so- 
ciety was entertained at a delightful Valentine party, by 
Irene Merrill. A hunt for hearts began the fun, and hearts 
there were, hundreds of them, behind every picture, in 
every corner. Games and ghost stories occupied the rest 
of the evening until the auction, when Anne Floreth, as 
auctioneer, sold off the new members, one by one, to the 
highest bidlers, for flunkeys. 


The society is happy to announce that on February 
sixteenth, the following girls were initiated as members of 
Lambda Alpha Mu: Miriam Anderson, Reba Gaskins, 
Dorothy Westphall, Maude Strubinger, Winifred Burk, 
Ethel Birkes, Ruth Young, Edith Brown, Celesta Mills and 
Elisabeth Witbeck. 

At 6:30 p. m., on February twentieth, the Lambda 
girls, new and old, met at Colonial Inn for their annual 
banquet. The menu was sumptuous, of course, as all such 
menus are, but above all we enjoyed the toasts of the eve- 
ning. We were glad to have with us Miss Mary Anderson, 
who presided most graciously as toastmistress and called 
for the following toasts: 
Page Twenty 

®be College Greeting* 

"Gladly we rank ourselves with Thee." — Ethel Birkes. 
To Friendship — Helena Munson. 

"Here's to the friends we class as old, 

And here's to those who are new; 

May the new grow soon to us old 

And the old ne'er grow to us new." 

"Standing for scholarships and fun 
And true college spirit, all in one." 

— Mary Harrison. 
To Lambda Alpha Mu — Ruth Want. 

"To those who know thee not, 
No words can paint; 
And those who know thee, 
Know all words are faint." 
As the banquet celebrated the initiation of our new- 
members, the topics of the toasts were especially appro- 
priate. Ethel Birkes, as a new girl, answered charmingly 
the quotation from our song, while Helena Munson's re- 
sponse "To Friendship" was full of tender reminiscence 
and real feeling for the richness of friendship which the 
society relationship brings to its members. We joined 
hands around the banquet table and sang the society song 
before going into the music room where Elisabeth Wit- 
beck and Edith Brown sang and May Shastid gave several 
instrumental numbers. Besides the present membership 
there were also present several former members and guests 
among whom were Dr. and Mrs. Harker and Miss Mothers- 
head from the college. 

On the day of the iniation, the old members were 
much surprised, upon entering the hall, to find a large 
mission '"Grandfather" clock looking very much at home 
in its place in the corner and bearing the card, "To Lamb- 
da Alpha Mu, from Her Pledges." The clock is a beauti- 
ful article in itself and adds very greatly to the appearance 
of the hall. 

We were very glad to have with us during examination 
week, Verna Pierce, one. of our last year's members, who 
is teaching this year in the public schools of Dover, 111.

The society is to study, this semester the Feminist 
Movement, as it is finding expression both through the 
women of our country and those of foreign lands. 


Belles Lettres is very glad to announce the following 
new wearers of the shield: Blanche Loveless, Gertrude 
Wilson, Margaret Slatten, Vivian Keplinger, Marie Toole, 
Beulah Smith, Andra Miller, Margaret Wilder, Leta 
Groves, Louise Savage, Mildred Spencer, Isabel Carriel, 
Bess Brewer, and Helen Mathis. 

An impressive initiation was held in the hall the night 
of February thirteenth. After the ceremonies every one 
had a delightful informal time at the Valentine party. 

At the meeting the following Tuesday, the new girls 
had an opportunity to display their literary and musical 
ability and we are certainly delighted to welcome them 
as members. 


Phi Nu was very glad to add to their numbers the fol- 
lowing new girls: Anna Moore, Marjorie Brown, Anna 
Margaret Gist, Gladys Holland, Grace Reavis, {Catherine 
Glascock, Romaine Loar, Olive Scott, Grace Lees, Made- 
line Land, Louise Virgin, Marjorie Barr, and Margaret 

Saturday evening, February 13, the old members gave 
a Valentine banquet for the new ones and the presence of 
two old Phi Nu's, Celia Cathcart and Freda Sidell, added 
to the pleasure of the evening. 

The following Tuesday the new girls were initiated and 
it was with joy and feeling that the old girls, with the sup- 
port of the new, sang again: 

Let us gather of the brightness 

While Morn shines on our way, 
That we may scatter sunshine 
Where darkness hides the day.

The chapel service on January 26 was made especially 
interesting by a short forceful talk given by Dr. A. E. 
Corey, secretary of the "Men and Millions Movement" 
of the Christian church. We see from the last Pegasus 
that Eureka College is to have a new gymnasium as a re- 
sult of the efforts of the movement. 

Mrs. Hartman entertained in her studio in honor of 
Mr. Shattuck after his recital. Mr. Shattuck's recital in 
piano was enthusiastically received and applauded. 

Mr. DeWitt visited v/ith Helen one day this month. 

The sympathy of all went out to Louise Gilfilan when 
she was called home because of the death of her mother. 
We were glad she has been able to continue her year's 

Ola Lux, who was forced to drop her work at the end 
of the first semester last year, has returned to continue 
her course. 

A number of new students have entered our lists for 
the second semester. They are: Adelaide Ferris, Joy 
Webb, Mildred Stearns, Sydney Brown, Mary Fern Gillog- 
ly, Sina Read, Reba Ferguson. 

Harriett McManus was lately called home by the death 
of her aunt. Her return was welcomed. 

The Monday Conservation Club was entertained in 
the Society Halls by Miss Mary Anderson and Miss John- 
son on February 8. 

On February 8, Mrs. Hartman appeared in voice re- 
cital before a large, appreciative audience. After the re- 
cital, Miss Knopf, Mrs. Colean, Miss Miner, and Miss Miller 
entertained in honor of Mrs. Hartman.

A son, Preston Aldace Ferris, was born to Mr. and Mrs. 
Claire E. Ferris. Mrs. Ferris was Hazel Ash, who gradu- 
ated in the class of '10. Mr. Ferris is a druggist in the 
city of Santiago, Cal. 

Word has been received from Miss Postel of the St. 
Louis I. W. C. Alumnae society, that Susan Rebham is 
now president and Nelle Holmback secretary of the or- 
ganization. They are planning to hold a meeting at us- 
ual time, early in May. 

Word has been received announcing the birth of a 
daughter, Geneva, to Mr. and Mrs. William E. Fearson of 
Coalinga, Cal. Mrs. Fearon was formerly Miss Lulu Black- 
burn, a member of the class of '99 of I. W. C. 

The Illinois Woman's College Society of Decatur, Illi- 
nois, held their meeting February 1 9. A six o'clock dinner 
was served, after which a very interesting program was 
given and a business meeting held. 

Dr. and Mrs. Harker and Mrs. Lambert were present 
to represent I. W. C. of today. 

Miss Glayds Leavell, who received her A. B. in 1911, 
is teaching chemistry and mathematics in Lenox Hall, St. 
Louis, Mo., and studying at Washington University. 

Miss Mildred West, who graduated in the same class 
with Miss Leavell, is teaching German and history in Mar- 
ion Normal College, Marion, Ind., and studying at Marion 

A few weeks ago Dr. Harker asked all the girls who 
had relatives in school at any time to hand in their 

nes and the dates when they attended. There were 
thirl - ; rls who handed in lists and the number of 

t : ves that have attended the college totalled a hundred 
1 nine between the years 1852 up to the present. 

Mae Blackburn holds the record of twenty-one rela- 
tive on comes next with thirteen, and Lucile 
I nine. Helen McGhee and Lura Wiswell 
each have had six. Three girls had five relatives and as 
the number decreased the number of present girls in- 
creased until for those with one relative, there were eleven.

A few extracts. Do you recognize any from your 
college paper? 

Class Room Etiquette. 

1. Come late, if possible, because then you will be 
seen to better advantage and aid the lecturer in his pause. 

2. Never bring a note-book. You can borrow paper 
from your friends and the noise created is but a slight dis- 

3. If you haven't a fountain pen, someone will loan 
you a pencil, which you can sharpen during the lecture. 
This enables those near-by to laugh without being heard. 

4. Sleep, if possible, because the lecturer prefers an 
interested audience. 

5. If sleep is not agreeable, talk to the girl next you. 
Her giggles at your witticisms "enthuse" the lecturer. 

6. Throw ink on the floor, for the college has jani- 
tors for the express purpose of keeping them clean. 

7. Lastly, don't take notes, because if you follow 
these rules you can remember all that the lecturer has said.

With wind and cloud and changing skies?

That through the snowy valley flies."
